The Biotechnology Centre of Oslo has a number of service facilites that provide routine services. Many of these facilities have the capacity to accomodate researchers from other UiO units as well as external clients.
This facility is equipped with automated screening instrumentation and an 18,000 compound library. The platform enables discovery of small molecules to probe, explore and modulate biological systems. Services are provided on a service-basis for external customers.
The laboratory provides rapid synthesis and delivery of oligonucleotides, produced according to the customer's specifications. A wide range of oligonucleotides can be synthesized, including si-RNA , miRNA , chimmeric oligos and Ribozymes.
The laboratory can synthesise peptides in solution and peptide arrays on cellulose membranes, as well as analyse amino acids from peptide hydrolysates.
A variety of proteomics services are available, including protein sample clean up, separation and staining, immunoblotting, protein digestion and sample clean up, protein identification (several methods), de novo sequencing and MaxQuant analysis.
